    Starbucks’ Announcement to Hire Based on Foreign Nationality Is Against US Law

    Starbucks’ Announcement to Hire Based on Foreign Nationality Is Against US Law

    Democrats shed major crocodile tears this past weekend after 109 of 325,000 foreign passengers were detained at US airports over the weekend.

    Which was very odd because Obama banned Iraqi refugees for six months in 2011 and Democrats said nothing.

    Starbucks Corp CEO Howard Schultz announced on Monday that the company plans on hiring 10,000 refugees over the next five years to ease the company’s conscience.

    Bloomberg reported:

    Starbucks Corp. Chief Executive Officer Howard Schultz, who wrote he had a “heavy heart” over U.S. President Donald Trump’s immigration order, said the company plans to hire 10,000 refugees over five years around the world.

    Trump issued an order on Jan. 27 suspending the admission of refugees into the U.S. for 120 days and banning citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries for 90 days. The directive has been criticized by U.S. allies Canada and Germany.

    Starbucks is in direct contact with employees affected by the immigration ban and will do “everything possible to support and help them to navigate through this confusing period,” Schultz said in a letter to employees posted on the coffee chain’s website.

    However, if Starbucks decides to hire employees based on nationality that is against US federal law.

    That violates U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission rules.



    According to the EEOC:

    Under the laws enforced by EEOC, it is illegal to discriminate against someone (applicant or employee) because of that person’s race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to retaliate against a person because he or she complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

    Beyond that, they'll most likely find themselves in violation and facing fines when the requirement to verify someone is legal to work in the United States is put back in force.

    I can't wait for that one. It's going to be fun to watch SJWs protest against laws that prohibit employers hiring people who will displace SJWs as cheap labor. And it still won't matter because the law is on the books. Nothing could be sweeter than seeing a loser cry for binkies, coloring books and safe spaces because his protests to keep himself unemployed don't accomplish anything.

    I saw mention today that there's going to be a Budweiser commercial during the Superbowl that will follow a similar path. Good on 'em! (I stopped drinking 30 years ago or I'd join the pending boycott.)

    Today millions swore off Starbucks. The stock fell 5%. Once the news gets out there to more people, those losses should both accelerate.
